A Quiet Place Part II
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt's thriller A Quiet Place Part II takes place right after the events of the first film. The story once again returns to the perilous setting, where, in order to survive the attack of the monsters, the characters have to function in complete silence.
A Quiet Place II also features Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe, while Krasinski has a cameo appearance.
Amazon Prime’s anthology series Solos features Academy Award-winning actors Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway, and Helen Mirren.
The series, created by David Weil, also features actors Uzo Aduba, Nicole Beharie, Anthony Mackie, Dan Stevens, and Constance Wu.
The seven-part anthology series explores the strange, beautiful, heartbreaking, hilarious, wondrous truths of what it means to be human. "The series spans present and future, and illuminates that even during our most isolated moments, we are all connected through the human experience," the streamer said in a release.
Solos is executive produced by Weil and Laura Lancaster with Pixie Wespiser serving as a producer.
Weil makes his directorial debut, helming three episodes. Sam Taylor-Johnson directs and executive produces two episodes. Additional directors include Zach Braff and Tiffany Johnson.
Here is the official synopsis: "Set among outcasts on the edge of capitalism’s grasp, First Cow is a rare tale of the blossoming of a heartfelt male friendship, and one told with sublime gentleness and touching compassion. Two travelers, on the run from a band of vengeful hunters in the 1820s Northwest, dream of striking it rich, but their tenuous plan to make their fortune on the frontier comes to rely on the secret use of a wealthy landowner’s prized dairy cow."
First Cow will be available to watch on MUBI from 9 July.
